A new twist For those of you tired of all the over-the-top bling out there, Saint Laurent's minimal, architectural Le Deux Clous sterling silver bracelet (above; HK$13,900) might hit the mark. We also like the Apophis gold-toned brass cuff (top; HK$7,550) for something a little more dramatic but no less disciplined. Saint Laurent is in Alexandra House, Central, tel: 2868 0092.


Double dare Forever a fashion editor favourite, cerebral designer Haider Ackermann is offering some daring accessories again this season. We adore the mesh-effect pointy-toed pump (above left; HK$11,800) and the strappy bootie (above right; HK$16,300), both in black leather and both packing quite a punch. Haider Ackermann is available at Lane Crawford, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2118 3388.


Too cool for school With so many great options around, you can easily plump for something different when choosing sunglasses this summer. Miu Miu has a wonderful range that includes this exaggerated cat's eye shape, in black and white (above right; HK$2,600), as well as the more futuristic red and black geometric frames (above left; HK$2,850) with "cut off" bottoms. Miu Miu is in The Landmark, Central, tel: 2523 7833.


Mysterious girl With all these Hollywood spy movies released recently, how many of us don't want to channel spook glamour? Never mind if your only detective work to date is locating your odd socks - you can at least look the part in Gucci's pre-autumn collection, which has dark mysterious tones and sculpted shapes, with waistlines accentuated by peplums and belting. The black dress (above right; HK$32,000) with velvet skirt, high-neck tulle top and silk georgette tank would be a good evening option. The deep olive green oversize wool coat (HK$23,800), mohair V-neck (HK$7,850) and turquoise stretch flannel trousers (HK$7,700) paired with jaguar-print leather gloves (HK$6,650) and jaguar-print handbag (all above left; HK$21,900) would make a lovely colour combination for those overseas espionage missions. Gucci is in The Landmark, tel: 2524 4492.
